Hello Stampin’ Friends,
I have returned! I took a little R & R after the busy Christmas / New Years holiday. After 25 years in the Quality Control field and not having to work holidays and such, it’s been quite a transition to managing a retail store, especially during the holidays! I do however love the fact that I have maintained my Stampin’ business for almost 15 years, and I thank you for supporting me along the way!
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed time spent with friends and family. Today my card share has the sentiment that I wish for you this New Year! “Do more of what makes you happy”.
The sentiment comes from the “Hello Life” stamp set that will be available January 6th from the new Occasions catalog (pg.6) When you look at the catalog it will show 4 of the images at full size and the remaining 6 at 50% or half the size. So you can see by my card that the sentiment is much larger than shown.
The beautiful background paper is the “Painted Blooms” Designer Series Paper that I gave you a sneak peek on my December 28th post. I love the many different patterns and color combinations of this paper.
The base card and stamped sentiment is done in the tantalizing “Blackberry Bliss”.
The cute little heart also comes from the “Hello Life” stamp set … I cut it out, added it to my sentiment, filled it with “Crystal Effects” and sprinkled it with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. The Crystal Effects absorbs the glitter and holds it in place … it looks so pretty! Love that technique!
The inside stamped images is yet another stamp from the “Hello Life” stamp set. Hope you enjoyed today’s card, it’s quick and easy to make!
Thank you for stopping by today, and for your patience while I took a mini-break.
Have a wonderful day …. and do more of what makes you happy this year.
Please note that the “Hello Life” and Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper is not available until January 6th. However the ingredients needed for this card will qualify you for a FREE Sale-a-bration Item!!
